The number of condos sold in February across the Daytona Beach area was down from last year but better than in January.
An analysis of Daytona Beach Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data by Wyse Home Team Realty showed that 110 condo units were sold around the Daytona Beach area in February with a median sales price of $241,250. That’s a 71 percent increase over January, but a nearly 31 percent decline from February 2022. Sales volume in February was down by more than $18.7 million from last year, according to MLS reports. Meanwhile, the median condo sales price was 23 percent lower than it was in January but only slightly lower than prices in February 2022.
“It’s typical to see a seasonal incline in condo sales we see each year as tourist events like race week, bike week and spring break drives people to the Daytona Beach area,” said Ron Wysocarski, Broker and CEO of Wyse Home Team Realty in Daytona Beach. “And in this case, it was welcome improvement over January.”
Low inventory levels are playing a role in keeping prices high right now, Wysocarski said.

“White Flags of Surrender” ? Replacing 2 years of lower & more affordable prices with Biden’s inflation isn’t a soft landing. It’s selling what you already had, paying more for what your dollar was already buying for deeper in debt. The new normal is higher prices, each of us is eating Biden’s soft landing. Gasoline has been pretty steady, brace yourselves for the summer gouge and the seasonal fall & winter relief. We all have pretty much lived in Palm Coast during Trump & thru Biden to date. The worst gasoline prices I paid for 87 octane were $ 2.659 in 2019, under the Biden soft landing, paid as much as $ 5/gallon for 87 octane. Your grocery & every bill is higher too. That’s not a soft landing, it’s just deeper in debt, hammered into submission. Charging $ 5/gallon, when we get $ 3.50/gallon, that’s to make you feel like you got a deal. Marketing strategies of price, product, promotion & distribution. If we’re told that any of is is given up to 70 % off, we’re duped into believing you’re getting a bargain for overpaying for the item.
Who wants to live in this high crime area of thugs andvdrugs, not to mention all the strip malls and overpopulated areas 24-7 destruction of natural areas.
